Life on the Road is due to start shooting in 2015! Find out more here...
In a press release, the funnyman announced that he will begin shooting the BBC Films feature in the UK next year.It read: "We find out what Brent is doing now and what's happened in the last 15 years since his redundancy from his beloved Wernham Hogg.
"He's a sales rep now, selling cleaning products up and down the country, but has never really given up on his dream of being a rock star."
The flick is set to follow Brent's self-funded UK tour, which he believes will end up like "Scorsese shooting The Rolling Stones".The release continues: "It turns out to be a 'where are they now' documentary. He has to take a few weeks off work and cash in a couple of pensions, because the session musicians in the band are costing him more than he's getting in ticket sales. Tragic."
Gervais portrayed Brent between the years of 2001 - 2003, reprising the role for Comic Relief in 2013.
